Yost announces art contest for students in his district
Del. Joseph Yost, R-Blacksburg, has announced an art contest for students in his district that covers Radford, Giles County, and parts of Montgomery and Pulaski Counties.
Earlier, Del. Greg Habeeb, R-Salem, who also represents part of Montgomery County, announced an art contest for his district. You can find details on that here.
Here’s a release with details about Yost’s contest:
Today, Delegate Joseph Yost announced the start of the 12th House of Delegates District Art Contest. The contest is open to all students in the 12th District and will close November 30th.
“I’m excited to see the great work from students across the 12th District,” said Yost.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be chosen from the entries in three age groups: Elementary (K-5), Middle (6-8) and High School (9-12). Winners will have their art displayed in the General Assembly Building in Richmond and will be invited in January to visit the Capitol and see their artwork.
The theme for this year’s contest is “Virginia Landmarks.”
“The Commonwealth is full of landmarks that have outstanding historical and cultural importance” said Yost. “From Smithfield Plantation in Southwest Virginia, Monticello in Central Virginia, Mt. Vernon in Northern Virginia, and the Cape Henry Lighthouse on the coast, Virginia has one of the most diverse landscapes in the country. I look forward to seeing the students capture the Commonwealth’s great treasures in their artwork.”
